I've Got a Cold...:P

Hello! Dith id Nicki, and I'm writing like dith for fun.:P Nikki caught a nasty cold from her dad, and now I've got it! (What was it her mom said a few years back about dolls not catching colds...?;)) I've been sitting in bed all day, and Julie's staying over with Elyssa and Lindsay until I'm better. She says she doesn't want to catch my cold, but Nikki says she'll probably have it anyway, and everyone's getting it, so if she doesn't get it from me, she'll get it from someone else. She didn't listen though. She said she still didn't want to sleep next to me, because I'll probably snore and sniffle all night.:P So, that leaves me alone... except for Nikki. We can quietly sniff to each other all day. Nikki felt a little better, so she got up and took pictures of me.:P

Here I am! Floppy and fuzzy. I was reading the book I borrowed from Elyssa, but I got bored, and I wanted to lie down for a while, anyway.

Nikki insisted that I wave and at least try to smile. Here's the result, lol.

Oh, no!

I suddenly realized I had to sneeze. Just before I sneezed, I sat right up and squeaked with surprise, and Nikki thought it was very funny... and somehow managed to take a picture the very moment before my head exploded.

I decided to go back to my book, but then something bounced on the end of my bed. I put the book down to look.
 Oh! It was Sprocket!
"Come here, Sprocket!" I said, patting the bed. He's nice to be around all the time, but when you're sick, he's the best company!:)

And he came over and sat under my arm. He's a great friend, and he doesn't take pictures of you when you sneeze!;) He's still next to me now, after I got up and came to the computer!:)

"Achoo!... Sniff sniff..." Hmm... I just sneezed on the keyboard. Maybe I should go back to bed... Should I tell Nikki? Maybe, but I think I'll wait till she's typing on it. Ha ha ha haaa! Just kidding... well, half-kidding anyway.;)

Anna and Sarah Out in the Wet

Hello! I'm Sarah, and I'm pretty new here. We all have so much fun, though, I feel like I've been here for years!

Today, I decided to go outside and have some fun, even though it's still quite cold, and it's rained almost every day for months, and everything's soggy and muddy. I borrowed Anna's scarf and mittens, though.

 I walked down the path, wondering what to do. Everything was so, quiet, I guessed I was the only one silly enough to go out on a day like this. Then I saw a nice, big tree!

I went over and examined it. It looks climbable, I thought. There were no branches most of the way up, but I can get up without those!:)

I looked around for people, because if someone saw me, they would probably tell me that a 16-year-old girl should be more ladylike, and I don't really see the point in that, as long as you're not rude. No one was about, anyway, so I started to climb it.

I was just getting to the branches, when I heard someone call me from down on the ground.
"Hey, Sarah!"
I almost lost my grip and fell! Once I had a good hold of the tree again, I looked down.

There was Anna, waving at me to try and get my attention.
"What are you doing up in the tree?" she called.
"Climbing it!" I laughed. "I like doing things like this."
"That is okay. I like it too."
"Great!" I climbed down carefully.

"Why are you out here in the cold?" I asked.
"I felt like to have some fun."
"Oh, okay. That's the same reason I came out."
We started walking up the path together.

"Let's go sit on the wall behind those bushes!" I said.
"That is a good idea! I saw it is dry earlier, so it is a good place to go."

When we came to the steps, we decided to hop down.:) The wind blew our hair everywhere while we jumped.

When we got to the little wall we sat down.
"I love all things outside," Anna sighed, in a day-dreaming sort of tone.
"Me too."
She turned around, then said, "Oh, look! The flowers are starting to come out!"
"Yay! That means it's spring!" I smiled, looking at the pretty little purple buds behind us.
"Ow!" said Anna, suddenly.
"What is it?"
She laughed at herself as she carefully pulled a dry bramble stalk off her arm.
"This is all thorny!" she said.
As I turned to look at the plant, something tugged at my hair. I squeaked, and then realized what it was. The dry bush behind me was full of thorns, too!
"My hair is caught in this bush!" I said, half-laughing.
"Oh! Let me help you." Anna reached over and got my hair off the bush.
"You're welcome."
"Let's get up."
"Yes, let's," Anna said quickly.

We stood up and brushed the dirt off ourselves, and Anna took a better look at the bramble that had caught her.
"Shall we go inside now?" she asked.
"That's probably a good idea!" I laughed. "This is about the only dry place to sit down."

We set off for the house again, holding hands...

... and jumped the step at the door!:)

As we walked in, it suddenly felt so much warmer.
"Oh, it's so warm!" I said.
"Yes!" said Anna, as we took off our shoes.

We closed the door and walked in.
"Shall we make some hot chocolate?" Anna asked.
I smiled widely at that idea!:)
"Yes! Definitely!"

 Ten minutes later, we were sitting on our bed with lovely, hot, hot chocolate!:)
I had lots of fun, but I think I've had my taste of winter for the year!;)

Cindy and Sarah

Hello! Cindy here!:) Me and Sarah are finally on the 'Get to Know Us!' page, with all our likes and dislikes and our birthdays, too! Sarah's just turned fourteen, and the rest of us feel pretty bad, because we thought her birthday wasn't for another week at least! We found her a late present anyway (a pretty little cat ornament), and she's being very nice about it. My birthday's in April!:)
